These are the colors of Kristianstads city, and of course, ours. If you join us, those are the colors you will carry proudly!
Kristianstads Nation got its name from the city Kristianstad in Scania. Historically students at Lund University used to join the nation representing their home city, but now we welcome students from all over Sweden and all over the world. Despite this, we kept the best of being a
Scanian Nation: In our house, the sun always shines!
Kristianstads Nation was created in 1890, when the growing Scanian Nation (Skånska nationen) had to split up in to 5 smaller nations. Nowadays, it doesn’t matter where you come from when you choose which Nation to join- whoever joins Kristianstads Nation belongs to the same family!
For several decades, our community has shared experiences, created memories and welcomed new members who have kept writing the story of the Nation. Do you need some help understanding the gobbledygook of older members? No worries, here is a little list to help you navigating our Nation’s references!

Nationshuset fungerar inte bara som verksamhet för nationen, utan står även till förfogande för 50 bostäder. Vara 45 är korridorsrum och resterande 5 lägenheter. Huset har varit med om en del genom åren, det är trotsallt ett studentbostadshus. Allt ifrån att gamla boenden kastar mikrovågsugnar från balkongerna till vilda fester. Något som lugnat ner sig avsevärt idag - men oroa er inte, fest finns fortfarande!

The nation meeting
The nation meeting serves as the nation’s highest governing organ. All members are entitled to vote at the meetings that take place three times per semester. Here representatives are elected, the budget is decided and other reports are reviewed.
Inspector and Pro-Inspectors
Charlotta Johnsson is the nation’s Inspector and keeps an eye on the nation. The Inspector is the nation’s principal representative, which means that it is the president of the nation meeting and the senior staff meetings.
Our Pro-Inspectors, Ola Troedsson and Emma Odsell Jangö, help the Inspector in it-´s work and also keep an extra eye on issues regarding the nation’s economy. Pro-Inspector can be explained as deputy Inspector.
Seniors are the board of the nation. They prepare cases before the nation meeting and discuss the strategic guidelines for the nation.
The quratel is the nation’s highest executive body and consists of two people working full time; the Qurator and the ProQurator Economy, and four people working part time; the ProQurator Social, the PR-manager, the Dungeon Master, and the Notary.
The quratel leads the nation’s everyday business to actively promote diversity and equality within the nation as well as to actively discourage discriminatory treatment. They consult the senior staff before major investments or decisions of strategic importance. They also fulfill the tasks and follow the guidelines decided by the nation meeting or seniors.
Every activity is run by one or two formen.
Foremen are responsible of:
– performing to the best of their ability, and of developing and leading the work of his/her workers
– responsibly managing the resources made available by the nation
– together with ProQurator Social continuously evaluating and improving his/her work
– training new foremen
– participating in various activities for the foremen
Workers help the foremen during the activities. They can help with anything from cooking to taking pictures. They are usually members of the Nation, but other students in Lund can also come and try it out.
The Nomination Committee
The nomination committee interviews and prepares all the nominees for elected office, except those elections prepared by the senior staff .
